The party or parties responsible for your injuries, or their insurers, may offer you a settlement soon after your accident, promising you quick cash to help cover your expenses. However, these settlement offers rarely represent the maximum amount of compensation that an at-fault party or insurance company is willing to offer. Nor will this lump sum provide the amount of compensation that you will need to fully cover your damages.
Help from a Baton Rouge personal injury lawyer can be critical to secure the maximum financial recovery that you are legally entitled to. A personal injury lawyer can thoroughly and independently investigate the accident and secure the evidence necessary to prove how your accident and injuries occurred and who was really at fault.
A personal injury lawyer is also equipped to identify the parties who may be legally responsible for compensating you for your injuries. This includes not only the people responsible for causing your injuries, but also their employer, other businesses, manufacturers, and property owners.
A personal injury lawyer can also target potential sources of funds that can compensate you for your injuries and damages, particularly insurance coverage.
The team at Tomeny | Best Injury Lawyers is well equipped to pursue personal injury compensation on your behalf. Our lawyers can negotiate a full and fair settlement by reviewing the offers made by the at-fault party’s insurer to ensure that you only accept one that provides you with fair and full compensation.
If a fair settlement isn’t offered, your lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf to pursue the financial compensation and justice that you deserve. As a part of this process, an attorney timely and properly files all required court documents. If your case makes it to trial, a personal injury lawyer will vigorously argue your case to a judge and jury to seek a verdict and judgment in your favor.
How Do I Choose the Right Personal Injury Lawyer for My Case?
If you’ve been the victim of an accident, you may know the complications and stress that result from trying to navigate the legal process – especially on your own.

With so many personal injury law firms to choose from – consumers are bombarded with all forms of ads every day – it can be difficult to know which personal injury lawyer is right for you.
